So, I picked up Mario Kart Wii over the weekend finally. All I have to say is damn it's fun. Oh shit my match is up! Gots to go!

Oh by the way, 10/10

And it's about damn time. Actually, I should clarify. My wife bought me a 360 as a gift. No special occasion, she just thought it would be nice. Heck yes it's nice! Coincidentally enough, I got her a present as well. I guess we were both feeling generous. (Also, tax money is awesome =D )

Anyway, now that I've finally joined the current generation of decent hardware, are there any games I should definitely play other than the obvious? By obvious I mean Halo, Gears, Rock Band, or COD4. So far all I have is Mass Effect. Help me Destructoid! You're my only hope.

Okay, so not so long ago I found a website that is chock full of amazing artists who just pump it out all day long. I'm not particularly artistically talented, but I do enjoy looking at other people's art quite a bit.

Anyway, today I was going through the forums and stumbled across this jaw dropping piece of concept art that some guy just drew up Photoshop. I seriously just stared at it for a solid minute and a half before I (probably audibly) said "I have to post this. Other people must see this". So here it is.

Prepare for you brain to explode from immense amounts of fanboy glee. Also, the animation and direction thereof is absolutely incredible. Enjoy!

After post after post after post about how so many things are sucking serious balls on the Wii platform, I've been considering selling my Wii recently.

I mean, why should I pay the same price as the 360 version of Rock Band when I get half the content? Why should I put up with nickel and dimed to death with games that are sold half finished? Is it just me or is there only one game on the Wii worth playing, and even it has it's share of problems. For crying out loud, the Wii doesn't even have DVD playback.

What do you think Destructoid? Should I sell my Wii and buy a 360?

WHO DO YOU THINK I AM?! A Gurren Lagann fan?! ... Okay, so you got me there. But even if you're not a Gurren Lagann fan, this figure is impressive to say the least. Revoltech is releasing a 120mm action figure in Mid-May that I must get. Granted, it's fairly small (just over 4 inches in American measurements) but the replaceable heads, and the amazing amount of articulation makes up for it. You can reserve it now for 1805 Yen (rougly $18) at your favorite Japanese figure store. I think I might just get this one. Now observe some pictures of it's awesome!
